Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a weird, contradictory guy. For the most part, I'm apathetic to
things that drive other people crazy - thanks in part to a finely
honed ability to tune out less pleasant aspects of life - but I'm
extremely passionate and intense about things that I care about.
I'm loyal and dedicated, but I'm not so good with moderation. I'm
not a huge fan of overly dramatic reactions to situations, and I
tend to try and see the lighter side of things.
I'm also a geek, which becomes quickly apparent after any length of
conversation with me. My family is irish, so if you're not used to
being around entire groups of intoxicated people at once, prepare
for a treat. My friends and family are the most important parts of
I am easy-going, rational, and snarky.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm doing marketing research and data entry for a company
that trains student athletes. My skill set is people/communication
oriented, so long term, I'd like to work for an organization that
utilizes my talents and does some real good in the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
procrastinating, having a flat affect. I tend to make people think
I'm disinterested or unhappy with a situation/conversation, but the
truth is that I usually have a pretty good poker face and don't
really give away what I'm thinking too often.
The first things people usually notice about me

It depends on the setting. I tend to blend in when I'm out and
about during the day - I just have one of those faces. Put me in a
social setting, though, and usually people notice that I have a lot
of energy and chat with a lot of people. I'm pretty talkative in a
group setting, but it can take me a little while to warm up to
individuals. People sometimes think I'm argumentative, and it's
true that I like to play devil's advocate, but really I just think
that most viewpoints should be challenged, even if only because it
allows people to explore the whys and hows of what they think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(a) I read random pulp fantasy novels, crappy sci-fi books people
find in thrift stores, and whatever my friends recommend me. I used
to get excited about books and reading, but 18+ years of schooling
have drained my love of reading from me and replaced it with a
slightly more pragmatic feeling.
(b) I dunno, it's been a while since a movie just resonated with me
and made me feel tingly and special. John Waters' movies are always
good for a laugh, my friends and I use them as a litmus test to see
how people are going to be able to get along with us.
(c) favorite artist is definitely NIN
, and I also really like Opeth
, and various others.
(d) pizza, chili, ribs, and burgers.
The six things I could never do without

tradition to enjoy the demon liquor and relax from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hold myself to ridiculous standards sometimes, and I tend to
assume that it was a failure on my part when things don't turn out
as well as I had hoped.
